California 3-Day Trip
Day 1: Los Angeles - Santa Barbara - Carmel - San Francisco
On the first day, we'll meet at 6:30 am on Fairfax Boulevard to board a minibus that will take us through California in search of its most iconic places.
Without wasting any time, we'll leave Los Angeles and head north along the Californian coast until we reach our first stop, Santa Barbara. Here, we'll discover its history and why religious missions were fundamental in the development of the region. Then, we'll visit the charming shops around Solvang and enjoy the scenery along the emblematic 17 Mile Drive.
Finally, we'll visit Carmel, where you'll have some free time to stroll around the streets before arriving at Silicon Valley, to spend the night.
Day 2: San Francisco
The second day of the tour will be dedicated to exploring the fascinating city of San Francisco. Are you ready?
The morning will begin with a walk along the city's most famous pier, Fisherman's Wharf. Here, we'll take a boat ride around San Francisco Bay and see the coast from a beautiful perspective. We'll also pass under the iconic Golden Gate Bridge and border Alcatraz Island.
After the boat ride, we'll return to the dock and have lunch at one of its fantastic restaurants. Afterwards, we'll take a guided tour of the city to see the Golden Gate, Chinatown, Union Square, and much more!
Day 3: San Francisco - Yosemite - Los Angeles
We'll start the morning with a delicious continental breakfast, and then hop on the minibus and head to Yosemite National Park, one of the most incredible places in the United States. There we'll enjoy exploring its forests, lakes, and waterfalls while taking a walk through these spectacular landscapes.
Afterwards, in the late afternoon, we'll return to Los Angeles back to the starting point.
From April to October, you can visit Yosemite. However, this visit will always depend on the weather conditions at the time since access to Yosemite is restricted if there is snow. In the fall and winter months, or if the weather is bad, we'll go instead to the town of Monterey, where we'll take a guided tour.
After this, we'll go to the famous Hearst Castle to discover the old fortress full of antiques and learn about its history, including why it became one of the favourite places of the rich in the area during the 20th century.
